Religion, evil or necessity?

Hipeer went to his home after his meeting with Ladoger. His home was located not too far from a big chain of mountains and it had a beautiful view of it. Hipeer likes skiing very much but recently he hadn’t had the time to go do it. He took a seat at the front of his home and reminded himself of skiing.

“I must call Gregory, he invited me last time to go skiing.” He thought. Hipeer knew that Gregory is from Agadorie as well as Gregory knew about him. He got up from his chair and looking at the mountains, he went closer to the barrier of his terrace. The breeze gently caressed his face. He just wanted to go and read his book when  the phone rang. Insisting bell didn’t allow him to defy it so he picked up the phone and before he said anything he heard a very nervous voice of his friend.
“I was thinking that I know what is the worst thing on this planet but I was wrong. The worst things are religions, do you know?” And he right away asked Hipeer.
“Do you know what a religion is?”
“Of course I do, it’s the kind of faith.” Answered Hipeer.
“You are wrong, you are very wrong my friend. Religions are the tools to start the wars. I spoke about it with a lot of people but nobody is listening to me. I need, I have to and I must yell about it but I see my voice is soundless.” His voice became very silent.
“Calm down my friend, calm down! Can you say something more about what is going on?” Hipeer said.
“Oh yes, with pleasure! With pleasure. But do you have the time to listen to me?” Asked Gleaser, one of young newcomers from Agadorie planet.
“No problem at all, all time in service as you know.” Answered Hipeer and reminded himself of his last meeting with Ladoger, but said nothing and become all ears.ReligionWar“People around the world need to believe. I understand it and there is nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs to have faith. We as well believe that everything what we are doing we are doing well. For many people religion is an equivalent and excuse for everything. They believe that all what is going up around one’s is the God’s wishes. So as you can see religion is quite important for one when one’s has the inability to exist with faith inside one’s body as we can. When exactly religion was created nobody knows. It is very likely that religion has been in use since people started live closer together. I started my examination of religions from ancient religions to present day. And I have to say that all that they were invented for were tools for the war. Nothing less, nothing more. In the human history we have a lot of examples of it. Starting from Roman history through Dark Ages and finished nowadays. During history were many Crusades during which Christians had a series of military campaigns against the Muslims of the Middle East after the time where the Muslims had captured Jerusalem. But both followers of religions forget about one very important thing. Jerusalem is a very important place for Christians as well for Muslim people. I can’t understand why they didn’t and still don’t have respect for each other.”

At that moment there was silence. Hipeer was wondering about what he has heard. And Gleaser was waiting for Hipeer’s response.

“Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has better imaginary friend.”
